Spring Pest Control - Which Bugs are We Treating For?
It isn’t uncommon to go through the winter months without noticing a lot of insect activity. In fact, it’s often one of the things we can all appreciate about cooler weather; we can walk outside without swatting away flies, wasps, and the likes. With that in mind, the cold doesn’t last forever! We have springtime temperatures to look forward to, and the outside world will come alive once again.
As the spring season brings warmer temperatures and greener grass, insects will enjoy their natural habits once again. This means we’ll see more activity from all kinds of bugs - wasps, ticks, spiders, and more! We want you to enjoy your spring, which is why we offer preventative maintenance. We encourage you to stay ahead of the game and make it hard for bugs to come into your home before they become strong and active. Here are the bugs we’re treating for when it comes to spring pest control.
If you’re from Arkansas, then you know how annoying mosquitoes can be once the days heat up. These blood-suckers start to become really active during the summer months, June through September. That makes spring the optimal time to start spraying to prevent them from near and around your home. Preventative pest control measures will protect you and your home from mosquitoes and the diseases they can carry. Plus, no one wants to spend half their day scratching at itchy bites.
Our pest control specialists will treat mosquito breeding sites to lessen the potential of a successful population. Year round preventative treatment will make the biggest difference when it comes to removing the annoyances and problems associated with these insects.
Ants can also become an issue during the springtime. As they search for food, they may find themselves finding what they need in your kitchen. As you probably know, ants come in large numbers when they find a source for food. They can be hard to get rid of, so once you see them, you already have a problem. Our pest control specialists can help you prevent ants from becoming an issue in the first place.
Ticks and Fleas
Taking measures to prevent ticks and fleas is always a good idea, but especially if you have furry friends living in your home! Ticks will stay dormant until spring, finding shelter in piles of leaves and brush. Adult females will lay eggs during the spring and the tick population will become active when it warms outside. The more warm and humid it is outside, the higher the chances of newborn ticks surviving and overpopulating during the summer. Preventative pest control measures will help to control ticks from taking over your yard!
